A couple weeks ago I was asked to assist in preparing a Sunday Suppers + Kinfolk dinner, as a part of Kinfolk's biannual gatherings, and mostly to share some of the delicious recipes from Sunday Supper's new cookbook in their lovely space.
I met Christina Liva working on a photoshoot with Vanessa Rees back in February and it was so fun to get to work with her again in the preparation of this meal. I made the cornbread and julienned the carrots while she singlehandedly tackled the rest of this meal -- sweet barbecued ribs, the most colorful slaw with garlic aioli, fingerling potatoes roasted in duck-fat, and then pies that I had unknowing helped prepare at Four & Twenty Blackbirds just days before.
It was amazing to see how Sunday Suppers operates behind the scenes and get to meet the talented photographer, stylist and mother behind the project - Karen Mordechai. She was just as graceful and put together as her photos indicate, and between meeting her, her lovely assistants, and spending time in her well designed space it would be easy to say the day was nothing short of inspiring.
